Stuart Dallas has not had the easiest ride as a Leeds United player in recent seasons.
The 27-year-old has been at Elland Road since 2015, but he has been in and out of the team under various managers.
This season, the Northern Ireland international has only started four of his 11 Championship appearances.
On Sunday, Marcelo Bielsa chose to switch Dallas from his natural position as a winger and play him at right-back due to a handful of injury problems.
The Irishman played the full 90 minutes against Wigan Athletic, who took the lead in the sixth minute via a free kick from Chelsea loanee Reece James.
The Whites bounced back instantly through Pablo Hernandez, who struck the equaliser three minutes later.

Kemar Roofe found the winner for Leeds, who moved to the top of the Championship table as a result.
On Twitter, plenty of Leeds fans posted their thoughts on Dallas’s performance and there was praise galore.

Well done Dallas, I thought he was great. Made some great passes and his crossing was spot on #lufc

Bielsa was absolutely right to talk up Dallas in his midweek presser. We’re not blind to his limitations but he’s our most senior option at RB until January so it’s vital that we display trust in him. Solid display today. Well done. #lufc

Let me post this first; I thought Dallas had a very good game. He was always an outlet on the right ably assisted by the genius of Hernandez. He is not a defender but he did well. #LUFC
